Really neat game! I love the rumor idea. I included it in my compilation video series of the Low Rez Jam games, if you would like to take a look :)

Cool game --- would be even better with some music

Great job, I love that it is so simple yet deep at the same time. I'm gonna garther my friends and we can bet real $$$ on those cute pixel horses :-)

Cute! Betting and watching felt addictive.

At first I didn't know I could press the side arrow to change the gate and type of bet.


Great stuff! I recall creating one of these on an 8-bit machine many moons ago...Nice use of screen space :)

Fun little game! I really like the idea. But clearly I'm not very good at betting at horses cause I'm not doing too well. I do miss music a little, or some classic horse racing trumpets effects or something like that.

I got it, i won one time!! haha Congrats, bro, nice game! o/

Thank you all for playing my game, I've played and rated yours as well!

@JackOatley Yeah was doing Ludum Dare in the weekend and was too busy to do sound unfortunately. :(

@Josefnpat Rumors get unlocked according to the money you have, at 100 you gain tier1 rumor and with more money you gain more rumors, they're not necessary to win but they help. :D

This is really cool. But sadly there's no audio? Anyway, it's very simple and clean and I like it. :)

Oh this is very nice! I didn't figure out the rumors, but I'm sure with more time it would have been easier and easier! Small bets at first I guess. Nice game!

I've never wen't bankrupt in a game so fast in my life ;) This seems... realistic. Fun betting game, loved the horses and the races, they're so cute!

Great artwork! The horses were sooo cute! Well-done system. Maybe you could add some sort of external goal besides gaining more money?

I read this as petting, not betting. LOL. Still contains adorable horses and a well done betting system!

I'm glad you added bets for placing, because I'd have lost real easy otherwise. ^^;

Reminded me of my childhood when my family would bet on horses :) Nice game! it'd be cool with sound!

That's a nice management game! :D
It needs a little bit of clarification but other than that I enjoyed the details. It was cool to watch and get excited over your horse :)
